Sewerage for the 21st Century: Executive Summary and Programme of Action
UK sewerage systems have changed little in the last 100 years in terms of their principles, materials and methods of installation and maintenance. However the pressures on the systems have increased enormously and the ways in which the service is managed, financed and regulated have changed greatly. Increasing environmental awareness, climate change and the drive for continuous improvement in efficiency and service all demand that the systems must adapt to meet future needs. This project seeks to identify the actions that the UK water industry must take to ensure that the sewerage infrastrucure and the service it provides will meet the needs of the 21st Century. The report is published in four volumes covering data collection together with operations and management, active control of sewerage systems, lifestyle and environmental factors and finally, legal and regulatory issues. This Executive Summary brings together the many conclusions and recommendations of the project.
